    I have been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Centralized processes (from FL) with local input and management (in CA).

    Continual training opportunities throughout the year provided internally (by ERAU) and remotely. Other training available for free (access to Lynda.com).

    Excellent full-time benefits including free tuition with the university, retirement contribution matching, medical/dental/vision, and PTO accrual that scales over time.

    Cons

    Adult learners with an aversion to technology.

    Salary not commensurate with the high cost of living in San Diego.

    The high cost of living creates a high turnover for entry and midlevel positions.

    Turnover results in new employee training that creates larger workloads for established employees.

    Advice to Management

    Provide COLA in high-cost cities.

    World class name recognition and reputation in the Aviation Industry. Superb camaraderie among peers.

    Relatively low pay for level of responsibility and expectation. Extremely limited opportunity for advancement beyond the Campus Director level...unless you have a PhD. Some of the remote instructional technologies need improvement/upgrade,
